Yes, it's a bar. And a fun one. But as good as the beer and cider offerings are, we come here for the food. It's very crafted and so tasty!

The tacos and sliders are delicious. This is in a row of several restaurants and a main attraction. Plenty of microbrews and a chill crowd.

I’ve been wanting to try out Priority Public House for several months and finally made the trek to Encinitas. It was well worth the wait. Priority Public House is a great local restaurant. The vibe is chill and unassuming. Families are welcome. The patrons are...More

I can hardly believe there is a higher rated restaurant. We had a meatball appetizer, with delicious asian seasoning. I then had mac and cheese, made with real cheddar and topped with sliced steak. My wife had well-seasoned chicken street tacos. Service was perfect.

Priority Public House in Leucadia. Fun, lively “local” atmosphere, SUPER servers! Really creative cocktails (I’m getting very picky!). I had the Beauty From Within-mezcal, falernum, luxardo maraschino,pineapple gum, lime juice, charcoal, an absinthe rinse. Weird and wild! Excellent American cuisine-we shared the Warm Blackeye Pea...More

Had a business lunch here recently and enjoyed it immensely. I had the sliced steak salad and it was excellent. The mixture of pickled fennel,olives, Gorgonzola cheese and lemon vinaigrette with the greens and tomato really accented the hanger steak.

Atmosphere - pnw pub style - lively / noisy. My BF and I enjoyed drinks and unexpectedly delicious brussel sprouts here. Their focus seems to be American comfort food - burgers, pulled-pork sandwiches, various mac & cheese concoctions, etc... Most likely tasty by the looks...More
